Both the westbound and eastbound traffic will take Exit 540 to SH-46/Bandera Road to enter the access roads. The traffic will continue through the Highway 46 intersection and get back onto I-10 at the next entrance ramps.

The new Highway 46 bridge over the interstate will be closed during the construction, and traffic will have to turn on the access roads.

A complete list of lane closures and other project information can be found on the TxDOT San Antonio district’s blog.
